Better than a Bounty

I know, there is a lot of neon pink going on in this recipe. Simply to make up for the lack of complexity of this pie, because four ingredients is all you need! No baking talent is required either, which is perfect since I'm no bakerella.

It started with a pack of shredded coconut. I didn't know what to do with it, until I found this super easy recipe. You'll need:
450gr of shredded coconut
60gr butter
225gr dark chocolat
300ml cream

Mix the butter and coconut flakes:

Press the coconut mixture in a low pie dish, I used 2 mini pizza plates. Preheat the oven at 175°C and bake the pie(s) for about 15 minutes until the crust starts to brown. Let it cool down.

Start making the filling. You can use excellent dark chocolate or some simple kitchen chocolate:

Boil the cream in a small saucepan and add the chocolate squares. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.

Pour the melted chocolate into the crust. Let it cool down and place the pie in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

And tadaaaaa: the perfect mini farewell pie for Rose! Five months flew by so we needed something sweet to ease the adieu. And believe me, it tasted better than a Bounty!

  1. Wow. This looks too easy and good to be true! Is it really sweet and rich? Did you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut? I have a feeling that this could become my new favourite tart recipe!

    1. The crust was chewy and the chocolate soft and silky :) The coconut I used was lightly sweetened. Most of the sweetness came from the chocolate. I was amazed at how easy it was to make this pie. Definitely something your kids could make (or eat!) ;)

    1. Yes!!! Elise showed me these super cool succulent cupcakes today, they look awesome, but not for non-bakerellas like us I guess ;) http://alanajonesmann.com/2013/04/diy-house-plant-cupcakes/
